The Little Snake River Museum and Carbon County Higher Education Center are hosting their 28th Annual Little Snake River Valley Fall Trek.
Join fellow history buffs for a day of exploration on Sunday, September 25th. The trek is free for everyone. Participants will drive their own vehicles to various historically significant locations in the Little Snake River Valley. Linda Flemming will guide the tour and talk about the history of each site.
The Little Snake River Museum and the LSR Education Center have sponsored every Fall Trek. The tour goes to a different place every year. Last year, the group visited Ryan Park to learn about the timber industry’s impact on the area.
Flemming, a former member of the board of directors at the Little Snake River Museum, will lead participants along Slater Creek and up to Bears Ears. Among other locations, Flemming will stop at Pot Hook Ranch where she will talk about the history of the ranch and its influence on the Little Snake River Valley.
Flemming will bring the group to where the Smith Sawmill once stood. The lumber produced there was sent to Dixon, Wyoming to be sold. Nothing remains of the mill, but Flemming will discuss the importance of the mill.
Those interested in the free tour, should meet at the Cowboy Inn, in Baggs, at 8 a.m. or join the group at 8:30 a.m. at the junction of WYO70 and County Road 1. Call (307) 383-6861 for more information or to let them know that you are coming. Bring your own chair and a lunch. The tour will stop along the way for a picnic.
